Holiday season is in full swing (how did THAT happen?!) and I’m kicking off our gift guides with a really fun roundup of 10 Funny & Fabulous Gifts for Your BFF!

I asked you guys on Instagram if there were any specific gift guides you wanted to see and one of them was Unique Gift Ideas by Small Businesses.

So I’m excited to share the first holiday gift guide of the year is…

10 funny and fabulous gifts that instantly made me laugh, smile or take pause. What more could you want for your best friend than a present as unique as they are?

Bonus: Most of these items are from female-owned small businesses and/or black female-owned small business, which I’ve noted  below.

The only gift that isn’t is Simon Doonan’s book, but c’mon, it’s Simon Doonan! I tried to link to the book on Jonathan Adler’s website, but it sold out there so I’ve linked it on Amazon and Tar-jay.
